A cool country barn redux


Old country barn

The man who built this barn was around 10 years old at the end of the War Between the States.. His descendants agreed for me to photograph it and gave me a few details about the structure. Our story includes some detailed pictures of the barn's innards.

We’ve been here before

But some things bear a second look. There has been recent interest expressed in photographing and documenting old barns. It’s nice to know I am no longer alone in this pursuit. Turns out there is a National Barn Alliance too.

I did this story originally in July, 2010. At that time the structure of the original building was sound for the most part. As you can see, you can’t say as much for the add-ons that are omnipresent in most southern barns I see. Let’s hope not much has changed in a couple of years. See our original Cool Country Barn post here.

Be sure and see the original Corndancer Photo of the Week story as well.

  1. Interestingly, I recall the original post but not by the barn – it was the great sky above the church.

    Joe … I have some interesting pics on this post done by a photography friend – thus I think you will enjoy.

  2. Hi Joe, from a first time visitor from Frank’s site.

    I too am from Arkansas, and we were both recently given a nod from Frank. Thus, we’ve at least two things in common, and I’m curious to continue reading in effort to discover more.

    All the best.

  3. I love barn photos. I recently put one up of my shot of a dairy farm at the end of February. I will return in August, for the six month after when all is green and lush.
